This recipe for Easy Fudge Brownie Pops is coated in chocolate and walnuts and diet friendly! This recipe was so quick and easy to make and the brownie recipe is one of the best brownie recipes I have come across. These would be a great way to get romantic with chocolate on Valentine's day and show the one you love just how much you do with all your heart!
The brownie itself would be great to eat just as brownies rather than the pop if you decided you didn't want to go the extra effort, but I promise you, the extra effort is worth it! This was the easiest pop recipe I have ever made. I was happy with how the balls formed and didn't break when dipping in the chocolate. That has been such a pain in the past for me and part of the reason I don't make cake pops often. With this recipe however, I feel you cannot go wrong! These would be a great treat wrapped up as a valentine for your loved one!
